An unlikely combination
We had dinner at a friend's house the other night. The husband is American and the wife is Finnish, and our evening reminded us how much we like Finnish people. They're just so sensible!
(Have you ever made sweeping generalizations about an entire country's people? Try it - it's fun! And also often true. For example, Turks are upright (definition 3) and Greeks are weird.)
They shared some self-imported Finnish chocolate with Miriam and me, but not with Jeremy. That's because this chocolate had bits of black licorice in it. Jeremy hates black licorice (ah, one treat I can enjoy without him stealing any). And man, oh man, it was SO good. Imagine the inside of little Good & Plenty candies sprinkled throughout a chocolate bar that would be really good even by itself, and that's what this was.
I know it doesn't sound like a likely combination, but I'm glad that someone (thank you, Finns!) finally figured out that putting black licorice in anything just makes it better.
This post gets an I Love Tucson label because these friends live in Tucson and also, it's been a while.
